Not the typical Immortelle Absolute...our Immortelle Absolute extracted from Helichrysum italicum G. Don flowers grown on the southern coast of France boasts complex tenacious aromatic notes we are proud to put our name on. A couple drops on the scent strip and nearly 24 hours later the unforgettable aromatic intensity lingers on. You will adore blending natural perfume with Immortelle Absolute, the possibilities are endless! If you have tried Immortelle absolutes of Spanish origin (known for being thick and difficult to work with) you are in for a treat with this mobile reddish amber liquid that needs no warming to liquefy. It is important to note that this Immortelle Absolute is from the same plant species that produces Helichrysum italicum essential oil.
For natural perfumery, emotional and aroma-therapeutic benefits Immortelle is also known as Everlasting for good reason. To save confusion, most refer to the essential oil as Helichrysum and the absolute as Immortelle or Everlasting. The extremely strong aroma of this absolute makes it the more preferred type of Helichrysum for perfumery. World renowned perfume and flavor expert Steffen Arctander writes that Immortelle absolute is used in perfumery for its deep-sweet, honeylike, tobacco-like notes, and for its fixative effect. He also says the absolute has an extraordinary ability of rounding off and bouquetting a fragrance which may need life and naturalness.
Aromatherapy use: Some emotional benefits such as calming, grounding, and anti-depressive; for skin applications and aroma-therapeutic healing the essential oil is widely used.
